Skokie, IL, (March 16, 2016)—Studio Technologies is introducing its new Model 211 Announcer’s Console, which is designed to serve as the audio control center for announcers, commentators and production talent.
The unit integrates all on-air, talkback and cue audio signal routing into one compact system. For simple installation, standard connectors are used to interface with analog microphone, headphone, talkback and talent cue signals.
Key Model 211 features include mic preamp with selectable gain and P48 phantom power, two line-level cue inputs, two pushbutton switches that offer programmable “click-free” audio path control, and transformer-balanced main and talkback outputs to maximize quality and reliability. The mic input is compatible with balanced dynamic or condenser microphones and incorporates a preamplifier circuit that provides low-noise/low-distortion amplification over a 20 to 60 dB gain range in 10 dB steps.
The main output is intended for use as an on-air, stadium announce or other primary audio feed. The talkback output contains resistors in series with its output connections, allowing the user to directly combine talkback outputs from multiple units.
Extensive configuration choices are accessible via DIP switches located on the bottom of the tabletop unit’s enclosure.
